Adulting is hard. Parenting is hard. There are so many things in our lives that cause us to worry and stress. Did you know, stress, travel and changes in routine (like a child who suddenly wakes up 14 times a night or summer vacation) can cause a disruption to your digestive system. Isn't being an adult fun? We get to worry about things like digestive issues (insert sarcasm). I'll be honest, I don't always have the best diet to begin with. Chugging coffee for breakfast, eating leftover bites off the kids plates throughout the day, and all those late night snacks with the husband. Unfortunately, as a result of this chaotic life, my waistline has suffered. As a busy, working mom of two, I knew I needed to take care of myself too. So, I decided to make a change, feel better, and try Align probiotics.
Align is a daily, gluten-free probiotic with a unique healthy bacteria that offers 24/7 digestive support to help you maintain digestive balance.*†
We all know that our guts are filled with bacteria, and a probitic will give the good bacteria a little boost. Once I decided to help fortify my digestive system, Align was an easy choice. Developed by a Gastroenterologist, Align is the only probiotic with unique B. infants 35624 a unique patented probiotic strain that helps*:
- Fortify your digestive system with a unique healthy bacteria 24/7*†
- Promote and support a healthy digestive system
- Maintain digestive balance
- #1 gastroenterologist-recommended†† probiotic
I picked up a supply of Align (found at Sam's Club) and decided to give it a try. The Sam’s Club® pack of Align® helps you balance your gut* and your budget, which is great because the club pack offers a 3-month supply. This allows for your gut to stay balanced for longer, while you can get a good feel for the product.
The first day, I felt kind of blah. I felt gassy and bloated. I was relieved to see that being gassy was normal for the first few days and, don't worry, it doesn't last long. For me, it was just a sign that Align was working. But, I was happy when that first day was over, and I already started to feel a difference on day two.
Days 2 - 14
After that first day, it was smooth sailing, and I didn't have any other issues. Adding Align to my daily routine was easy, since it's just a simple pill. There was no aftertaste or any weird side effects. I kept chugging right along, taking them daily and over the next two weeks, was so surprised at the changes I was feeling.
How to Celebrate Adoptive Parents
I recently learned that a friend who had been patiently awaiting a child became a parent practically overnight. When I heard about this loving couple bringing home their first baby, it really got me thinking about how to celebrate adoptive parents. We have experience with ...read more
Spiked Apple Cider Pops
September in the South is, in my opinion, still summer. The eighties and nineties always prevail and make the traditional fall flavors that I crave so much slightly out of reach. As much as I want to relax and sip on some hot cider, at the moment, I still need something iced. ...read more

I have taken Align for two weeks so far and I'm already impressed with the difference. I feel less bloated, and feel a dramatic difference to my digestive system and energy level. What mom doesn't want more energy?! I've been able to keep up with my kids and enjoy my summer with them so far! More energy for chasing after that non-stop toddler, riding bikes around the neighborhood, swimming in the pool, and crafting all afternoon.
I thought I suffered from brain fog or Mommy brain, but that seems better too. My skin is even clearer! My friends noticed my skin and one even asked me if I had on new makeup because I was "glowing." My late night cravings are pretty much gone too, which was a plus!
Now, I'm getting my husband into probiotics too. I think we all probably struggle with digestive issues, but we're too busy to even notice the little things that add up over time.
